Kris Brewster, Skipton’s head of products, added: “A property is more than bricks and mortar, it’s a home. And we’re always working to make sure our members can protect the things they love most. So after a thorough review of our home insurance offering, we’re delighted to be partnering with Legal & General. They’ve been insuring homes for over 90 years; and together with our 163 years of helping people save up for their dream home, we believe we’ve entered a great partnership.”

Legal & General Insurance has distribution arrangements for general insurance and protection products with over 15 banks and building societies.

Skipton is the UK’s fourth largest building society, with over 858,000 customers, £18.9bn of assets and a national presence represented by its network of 95 branches and 3 agencies.
